Jiffy Pro-Line Series Commercial Clothing Steamer
- Product Review (submitted on October 15, 2010):
I wanted the best steamer available so I bought the top of the line Jiffy. I had owned a Tobi for a short while, and it was alright but within a year it stopped working. After trying it out for about a week, I returned the J-4000 primarily because it takes a LONG time to warm up...10-15 minutes, with a 1/4 filled tank of water! All I kept thinking was "how much is this costing to heat up?". It is also quite large. I think this would be a great model if you do continous steaming, but I'm more spontaneous and steam/iron just what I'm going to wear at that moment--my mom makes ironing/steaming an entire day project--NO WAY!
I purchased the smaller model J-2000, it's 1300 watts, smaller tank to fill, and steam pours out in 2 minutes. That's what I like. I did several test 'steams' with the J-2000 and it seems to perform the same as the 4000. Maybe I wouldn't be saying that if I was trying to steam drapes or something really heavy. So, I gave the J-4000 four stars because I do think it's a great product, it just wasn't right for my use.
